Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
Stirring Spoon
Stove
Scale
Knife
9 x 13 cake pan
Wax paper
Pot (for double boiler)
Apothecary Jars
Cutting board
Sharp pencil

Step 1:  Using the double boiler method weigh out and melt 200 grams of beeswax.  Set the temperature of your stove top between medium and low heat.  Stir this occasionally.

Step 2:   Once the beeswax is melted, add 3 drops of Spectrum Purple Candle Dye and stir.  Place your pouring pot back into the heat source.

Step 3:  Lay out your cake pan.  Measure out at least 10 inches in length.  Then, place your knife across the pan at the 10 inch mark.  Next, lay the wax paper over the cake pan and knife.  Gently, tuck the corners down.    

Step 4:  Now, remove your beeswax from the heat source.  Weigh out 20 grams of Aphrodisiac Fragrance Oil, and add this to the beeswax.  Stir.

Step 5:  Next, slowly pour the beeswax over the wax paper.  Allow this to fully set up naturally.

Step 6:  Once the beeswax has hardened, gently remove it from the cake pan.  Carefully, peel away the wax paper.  Set the beeswax onto your cutting board.

Step 7:  Now, weigh out 1100 grams of soy wax.  Place this into the double boiler and allow it to melt.  Monitor the wax as it melts and stir occasionally. 

Step 8:  Using your sharp pencil, trace the leopard pattern into the beeswax.  This will be various sized irregular circles.  Hint:  You will want to go on the larger side for this pattern.  Then, using your knife cut these patterns out.

Step 9:  Carefully place the individual leopard circles against the inside wall of your candle jar.  Apply slight and even pressure until they stick.  Repeat this step until you are happy with your design.  Then, create your pattern in your second jar. 

Step 10:  Next, secure your centered wicks to the bottom of your jars.  We used 2- CD10 wicks per candle.

Step 11: 
When your soy wax is melted, remove it from the heat source.  Then, place 1 drop of Spectrum Purple Candle Dye into the melted wax.  Stir.  Next, add 110 grams of fragrance Oil.  Stir again.

Step 12:  Now wait until the soy wax is 115 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, pour the wax into your candle jar.  Straighten your wicks, and allow the candles to fully set up. 

Your Leopard candles are now ready.  Simply trim your wick, light, and enjoy!
